This compilation is published pursuant to Senate Resolution 132, Seventy-fifth Congress, first session, agreed to May 24, 1937, which is as follows:
Resolted, That there be prepared, under the direction of the Committee on Foreign Relations, a revised supplement of the compilation entitled “Treaties, conventions, international acts, and protocols, between the United States and other powers, 1776–1923”, to include treaties, conventions, important protocols, and international acts to which the United States may have been a party since March 4, 1923.
GENERAL PLAN OF THE WORK
In the preparation of this work the text of each individual instrument to which the United States has become a party since March 4, 1923, has been taken from the official Treaty Series print, or from the Executive Agreement Series (since October 1, 1929), as published by the Department of State, where these prints were available at the time of going to press. In a few instances, however, it was necessary
a to use the Senate prints of such instruments as had recently entered into force but which had not been officially printed by the Department of State. It should also be noted that in a few instances instruments ratified by the Senate, but which had not entered into force at the time of going to press, have been included in this work. In such instances the texts of the Senate prints have been used. Executive agreements not subject to ratification by the Senate, which have been proclaimed and entered into force since October 1, 1929, are shown only when existing treaties have been modified.
CURRENT TO DECEMBER 31, 1937
Volume IV is current as of December 31, 1937.
Treaties have been arranged in three groups, viz, bilaterals, multilaterals with American republics, and general multilaterals.
All treaties between the United States and a single other country are placed under the name of the second power and in sequence of date of signature. Included in this group are also such treaties as have been negotiated with two other countries but which apply to only one country. Such treaties are placed under the name of the country to which they apply. For example, treaties with Great Britain and Canada, in respect of Canada, are placed under Canada, with a proper cross reference under Great Britain. (See pp. 4:3919–4:4676.)
